2019 Spelling Bee

Hancock Literacy’s annual Spelling Bee is our signature fundraising event. This is one fun Bee! 

Our 2019 Spelling Bee will be held on Wednesday, May 15 in the Great Room of the First Presbyterian Church, 2330 South Main Street, Findlay, Ohio. Doors will open at 11:00. Lunch will be served at 11:15 and the Bee will begin at 12:15.

All communication will be sent out via email to the team captain of each team, including the spelling guide, fundraising tracking sheet, cheat information and the rules of the event.

Team Registration

Teams of three (silver sponsorship) or six (gold sponsorship) spellers participate as a team to decide how to spell a word. There are 12 rounds in the Bee and points are awarded for each word that the teams correctly spell. The team with the most points at the end of the 12 rounds (or sudden death rounds) is the winner of the Bee!
